U.S. Diplomat’s Wife Charged with Causing Death of U.K. Teenager by Driving Dangerously

U.S. Diplomat’s Wife Charged with Causing Death of U.K. Teenager by Driving DangerouslyThe wife of a U.S. diplomat was charged in the United Kingdom on Friday with causing the death of a teenager by driving dangerously. A conviction on the charges would carry a maximum 14-year prison sentence.Anne Sacoolas had been in the U.K. for just three weeks when she hit and killed 19-year-old motorcyclist Harry Dunn while driving on August 27.Sacoolas' husband Jonathan is a diplomat who was stationed at the RAF Croughton base in Northamptonshire, which Dunn's family asserts is a U.S. intelligence base. It is not clear if Jonathan is still in the U.K.Days after the crash, Anne Sacoolas fled the U.K. and claimed immunity from prosecution as the wife of an American diplomat. Dunn's family claims the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of Britain has told them it does not consider Sacoolas to have diplomatic immunity and U.S. officials concur."The U.S. have now informed us that they too consider that immunity is no longer pertinent," Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab wrote to the family."We believed. We have done it. We have got the charge. It’s amazing," Tim Dunn, Harry's father, told Sky News. "It does not matter what happens now."Harry's mother Charlotte Charles told the network she had promised to pursue justice for her son. "I would never have rested properly unless I carried out that promise," she said.During an October meeting at the White House, President Trump offered Dunn's parents the opportunity to meet Sacoolas, who was waiting in another room. The offer shocked the parents, who declined to see Sacoolas but did say they would meet her "on our terms and on U.K. soil."Sacoolas’ attorney Amy Jeffress said in a statement to the New York Post that her client will not willingly return to the U.K., but that she is "devastated" by the accident."Anne would do whatever she could to bring Harry back,” Jeffress said. “She is a mother herself and cannot imagine the pain of the loss of a child. She has cooperated fully with the investigation and accepted responsibility."Jeffress also said the 14-year prison sentence is "simply not a proportionate response."

Polar vortex freezes U.S. Midwest with snow, dangerously cold air

Polar vortex freezes U.S. Midwest with snow, dangerously cold airA blast of Arctic air from the polar vortex brought dangerous, bone-chilling cold to a wide swath of the United States on Tuesday, stretching from the Dakotas through Maine, with snow expected as far south as Alabama and Georgia. The Midwest was the hardest-hit region, as temperatures plunged below zero Fahrenheit (minus 18 degrees Celsius). By nightfall the mercury was hovering at 0F in Chicago, 7F (minus 14C) in Detroit and minus 21f (minus 29C) in Minneapolis.

Graffiti on stop signs could trick driverless cars into driving dangerously

Graffiti on stop signs could trick driverless cars into driving dangerouslyDriverless cars could ignore road signs on the streets since they can be confused by simple vandalism, researchers have found. While carmakers have been investigating ways to protect autonomous cars against hackers, more conventional attacks could confuse the vehicles into misreading road signs that would appear normal to ordinary drivers. Placing stickers or posters over part or the whole of a road sign could be used to trick the smart car into ignoring stop signs, even if visually they appear the same to the human drivers. Researchers at the University of Washington demonstrated how car hackers who had gained access to the visual recognition software within the vehicle could create simple alterations to road signs that would cause the car to misread them.  The researchers said changes that trick learning algorithms, such as those used in driverless cars, can cause them "to misbehave in unexpected and potentially dangerous ways." Stickers caused cars to read a stop sign as a speed limit sign Credit: University of Washington In one example, graffiti stickers were added to a stop sign that read "Love / Hate", which caused it to be misread as speed limit sign reading 45. In another trick, the researchers printed out a right-hand turn sign that looked almost identical to a legitimate one, but subtle colour changes caused the sign to be misinterpreted as a stop sign. "Both of our attack classes do not require special resources—only access to a colour printer and a camera," the researchers said. The team said they hoped the research could help build better defensive systems into autonomous vehicles. Although the turn right sign appears very similar the computer misread it Credit: University of Washington The dangers of such attacks could see cars driving straight through junctions or coming to a halt in the middle of the road. Some current cars are already equipped to read and detect signs, such as Tesla's Autopilot feature on its Model S electric cars, although the vehicles are not yet programmed to react to the signs. Threats to self-driving cars that would normally not affect human drivers have proved tricky for researchers to counter. Engineers at Volvo have been trying for two years to teach their cars how to avoid kangaroo collisions, while a team at Waymo was forced to develop a pair of tiny windscreen wipers to clean bird droppings that masked the cars cameras and LIDAR systems. This week the government announced new guidance to develop safer driverless cars. Transport minister Lord Callanan said: "We need to make sure that the designs of the vehicles in the first place are completely cyber secure so that people can't break into them, they can't steal them and more importantly they can't hack them to potentially cause accidents."
